    Found CSA Buckle Today

    Vol1266X and I got out this morning and went to one of our favorite hunting sites. We spent about 2 hours there and dug 9 pieces of canister shot. We left the site and drove back to his home town. When we arrived, we ate lunch at a new restaurant in town. While we were eating lunch, I saw a friend of mine that owns several rent houses. I walked over and talked to him and got permission to detect around his rental properties. After lunch I went back to work for about an hour and left to go home. I thought I would give a couple of houses a quick search and I am glad that I did. I found a few odds and ends such as an old button, a brass lock, and a couple of harmonica reeds. About 30 feet from the side of the house, I got a good signal registering silver on my MineLab and dug an eight inch plug. I checked the hole and still got a signal. I dug about 4 more inches out and the signal was still in the hole but it was registering just to the left of silver, so I was hoping for a large cent. So I dug about 4 more inches out of the hole and checked again. I got a strong signal from the dirt I had just pulled out of the hole. I brushed through the dirt and saw an "S" looking up at me. I thought I had just found a US buckle. I picked it up and turned it over and saw 3 hooks and realized it was rectangular and not oval. My hands started shaking and I turned it over, brushed a little more dirt off, and saw the "CSA." That was when I had to find a place to sit down. This is the first CSA buckle I have ever found. Thanks for looking.

    BANNER NO QUESTION!!! Congrats that was fast and was well deserved! You dug the HOLY GRAIL today!! Looks like its an Atlanta style, but could be a Tennessee also. If you post a profile pic I could tell right away; just a TERRIFIC FIND! If its thick its an Atlanta.....if its thin than its a Tennessee, either way its the Holy Grail

    Re: Found CSA Buckle Today

    First of all, I say BANNER!! but that's not all. In the 5 years you have been relic hunting with me, you have endured bitter cold, rain, sleet, snow, and heat and never complained. You have made many scouting trips with me with no productive results and never complained. When I dug the Tennessee Veteran's State Pin that day in 2008, you congratulated me and shared in the moment. When Josh dug the breatplate last spring and the U.S. plate this summer, you praised him. When you missed the trip 2 weeks ago when I dug the A.V.C. button, you were glad for me. Even this week when I dug the 1830 half dime (and I know how you love old coins), you congratulated me.
    NOBODY deserves this "holy grail" of Civil War Relic Hunting more than you. Enjoy the day. My only regret is that I was not there to see you dig it. Congratulations on a beautiful lifetime recovery from your own county Doug. Quindy.

    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.
